  1. A great discussion with lots of valid points and useful information! Highly beneficial Q&A session for copyeditors.

  2. Very useful session, especially for those worrying about future of editing. Coexistence and innovation will be hand in hand… and always remember that class is permanent. Be the best at what you do.

  3. A good session. As you say copy-editors have the connection to the content, so their contribution to regulate and build meaningful AI is needed.

  4. A very insightful and thought-provoking conversation.

    Copyediting has always been an essential task in publishing, and it is going to remain so forever. What changes (or what keeps changing) rather are the who, when and how! Evolution of technology and advent of sophisticated publishing tools have only made copyeditors more efficient by streamlining what they should really focus on, that is, the language and sense. So, I perceive AI to be the next revolution which would further narrow down the focus area for the copyeditors, making them more efficient and competent. Of course, there won’t be any place for mediocrity!
